You guys have Walmarts there too? ???


Yes...it's called ASDA. An acronym that means Associated Dairies (The original name back in the 70s). Walmart bought it out in the 90's but kept ASDA as the trading name. You don't get the disgustingly obese piles of fat running around on electric disabled buggies that you get in the States though.

Hes above average girth and wears a hoodie and horned hat when he shops.

I don't think anyone from the UK can cast many stones in this regard. I'm not sure if it is the diet (too much food, too much salt, drinking too many cokes,) our countrys' deal about taking in foreigners, the boozing, long working hours at often sedentary positions, or what but it seems most Anglo-derived countries are bad on the obesity lists. (Taking off the chart first the various Polynesian and some African ones.) Mexico is also pretty bad and with our open-border I know that skews some of our stats when you see it broken down by race/ethnicity. But UK is no slouch in this regard.  It is interesting how wealth and education level correlates, sometimes not always, with obesity. Access to better foods? More time for activity? Just more informed about healthy choices? I know Mike Obama used to talk about "food deserts."
